About Matrix ActiveX Component
The Matrix ActiveX Component (MaXC) was developed when we realized that we
needed a good Matrix Math Library that would do the “dirty work” of mathematical
computations. When we tried to find a readymade solution for this need, we realized
that such tools were either mainframebased Fortran or C libraries, or featurepoor
versions that were unreasonably priced.
For such a simple thing as matrix algebra, we could not find a lightweight
solution that would run effectively on a PC, and thus decided to develop such a
tool inhouse.
This tool, the Matrix Active X Component (MaXC), was formally released
in January of this year. MaXC already achieved recognition among mathematicians
and engineers for being an easy to use, robust and scaleable tool for mathematical
computations in application development.
The Birth of a Revelation
Prior to founding the company, Bluebit's principal engineer, Trifon Triantafillidis,
worked in the programming field, developing customized applications for companies
in the fields of data mining, ERP and in operational optimization. Along the way,
he discovered deficiencies in the use of using neural networks for optimization
programming and concluded that more deterministic methods were more appropriate
in real world use, therefore turning to Multivariate NonLinear Regression models,
those combined with Principal Component Analysis.
This revelation has completely changed our perspective in programming, and has prompted
us to embark upon a new vision, which is to create a major tool for Trifon's
original target (Multivariate NonLinear Regression combined with Principal Component
Analysis).
A Glimpse of the Future
Imagine an input of chaotic data entered in a black box. Inside this box, the data
relations are discovered, the mathematical formulas representing those relations
exported. The blackbox user is just receiving the results. Needs to know nothing
about the complex math needed to uncover the hidden relations.
This leads to self learning systems > expert systems > artificial intelligence.
In this scenario, any programmer could use premade black boxes (components) to
incorporate some form of expertise and AI in his application, as simply as one can
incorporate vbscript in an ASP web page today.
